Abstract Submission Guidelines

  • The conference language is English and all abstracts must be submitted in English.
  • Abstracts must be submitted online. Do not fax, mail or email your abstract as it will not be considered.
  • Abstracts can be a maximum of 2000 characters including spaces. This number does not include title, author names, and affiliations.
  • The title has a limit of 20 words. Title style is sentence-case meaning the title is written as if it is a sentence. Only the first word has a capital letter.
  • An individual may appear as first author on only one abstract and may present only one oral presentation.
  • The presenting author is required to be present at the conference.
  • Author names should not be capitalized throughout. Only capitalize the first letter.
  • It is the responsibility of the presenting author and submitting author to ensure that all authors have given their consent to be listed on the submitted version of the abstract.
  • Information is published as submitted, so please carefully check your spelling.
  • The text of the abstract should contain: objectives of the study, experimental methods used, essential results (incl. data and statistics, animal/human), conclusions, identification of sources of funding.
  • Special characters (e.g. Greek symbols) must be added at the web site from the special menu provided. 
  • Indicate preferred mode of presentation (oral, poster). Please be reminded that there is only limited space for oral presentations. In the event that an abstract is not chosen for oral presentation, it will automatically default to poster presentation. Abstracts noted with a preference for poster presentation will not be considered for oral presentation.
  • Choose 1 term from the Topic list. If you cannot find a term that applies to the abstract, choose the closest one from the list. The Topic primarily serves to help the Program Committee sort relevant abstract in an attempt to compose coherent sessions.

The Program Committee will evaluate each abstract for scientific merit and compliance with the guidelines.
